Religiosity & mental health seeking behaviors among U.S. adults

Cassis Boateng of the School of Nursing and colleagues assessed how religiosity relates to health seeking behaviors for mental health in a recent publication. Related to the topic of religiosity, Cassis presented at SAVIR 2023 about the role of spirituality in firearm injury recovery.

“Evidence suggests that religious and spiritual leaders may be more trusted than secular mental health therapists and are often the first point of contact for individuals with mental health problems who identify as religious.”
